Comments: This is another good prepatory hike that is close the DFW, yet it can provide some good conditioning and experience. There are stretches of solitude, but many homes and marinas along the trail so one is never really in the country. Although there is no relative elevation gain, the trail has enough ups and downs to provide some workout. Plus the trail conditions are much more natural and excellent for getting one ready for my adventursome trails in more rugged spots. Well worth the effort for a conditioning hike in preparation for a bigger backpacking trip elsewhere. I haven't tried the camping sites yet, but plan to do so later this year in preparation for my New Mexico trip.
